Abstract

Sweden is a major furniture importer at world level taking into account the limited size of the country population; CSIL ranked the country at the 15th position in 2010. In the last decade, Sweden has proved increasingly open to international trade. Nearly 60% of furniture demand in Sweden was satisfied by imports in 2010. Ten years before, imports accounted for less than 50% of total demand. This research is part of the Country Furniture Outlook Series, covering at present 70 countries. Each Country Furniture Outlook Report is structured as follows: furniture sector performance is analyzed through updated furniture statistics and through tables, graphs and maps. Information covers all the main variables necessary to analyze the sector, from the supply side (Productive Factors, Furniture Production) to the market side (Demand Determinants, Furniture Consumption), also considering the international trading activity (Furniture Imports and Exports). Future sector prospects and CSIL's assessment of market potential are also provided (Furniture Market Potential) and cross-country comparison is also shown in order to enrich the analysis (Country Rankings). Short profiles of manufacturers and distributors operating in the country and a list of international Furniture Fairs, Furniture Association and Professional Furniture magazines are also provided Background country information is also provided through summarized detailed statistics (Socio-Economic Data) as well as the country's attractiveness in terms of economic competitiveness (Business Climate)
